I must make note that this was done on very light tackle and it was not long before the reel was screaming and an hour later with an epic light tackle fight
Jozini Tiger Fishing Report - 22 April 2017 by Mike Laubscher (4/24/2017)
This time the fish started biting immediately and first cast got us a good fish and we ended the day with a total of 23 fish. I got a really big hit during this session but to my frustration my rod snapped and the fish was lost. In the last 30 minutes as the sun was setting down low we tried for a last fish to try get to 24 but the bite went quiet. All the fish we caught were safely released.

With it being school holidays we have had many children along on our charters and today was no exception. I always love the pure joy that oozes out of them when they catch a fish, it’s contagious and one ends up in a great mood feeling happy.

Light NE winds made for nice seas and water colour not to bad but not as blue as we like it. The water temps are starting to drop as we are in autumn already and were just under 24 deg.C. The fishing turned out great today with a lot of fish

Jozini Tiger Fishing Report: 31 March-3 April 2017 by Mike Laubscher (4/05/2017)
For 4 days we fished morning and afternoon sessions spending about 8hrs on the water each day. Sadly the water was the colour of coffee and we had no luck with the lures, even 4cm into the water and one could not see the lure and so we decided to switch to bait fishing on anchor instead. The early mornings had a slight nip in the air, but by 8am it was hot and the afternoons were extremely hot with very high temperatures.

With overcast conditions, rain and low barometric pressure we were not expecting anything to bite, in the end we came home with a few fish, not the best day out, but we did not skunk.
